Meeting Description:

Analysing Multimodal Discourse: SFL meets Pragmatics Conference, Loughborough University

1st to 3rd September 2011

The conference aims to explore the relationship between methodologies informed by pragmatics and those informed by SFL in the analysis of multimodal discourse.

The conference asks whether, and to what extent, bringing together different methodological and theoretical approaches can: enhance understanding of multimodal discourse; address the contextual information that participants in multimodal discourse draw on; lead to theoretically robust methodological innovation; create a new field of research for new media communication studies

Plenary Speakers:

Gunther Kress
Eija Ventola

Round table:

We will conclude the conference with a round table where participants are invited to join distinguished scholars representing well established paradigms in the analysis of multimodal discourse to discuss whether bringing together different theoretical stances, methodologies and methods is a) possible b) beneficial to methodological innovation and c) can lead to a better understanding of multimodal discourse and new research trends.

Call for Papers:

Papers are invited from researchers working across different linguistic fields and traditions, focusing on any aspect of multimodality.

Main Conference Themes:

Multimodal Discourse Analysis, New Media Communication, Genre, Proxemics

Paper submission:

Panel proposals of 500 words, with a clear indication of topic and a preliminary list of contributors are invited by 31st January 2011. Decisions about panels will be made by 21st February. Panel organisers should oversee abstracts from panel members, with an expectation of 6 papers in a panel ( 2 X 90 minute slots) and an absolute maximum of 9. Individual panel members should submit abstracts, clearly marked with Panel names, to the main conference email address by 15th March 2011 as below.

Individual paper proposals of no more than 350 words (max and including references, if necessary) are invited. The deadline for receipt of abstracts is the 15th March 2011.
